RSC inclusion, diversity, equity and access (IDEA)

Inclusion, diversity, equity and access (IDEA)

At the Research School of Chemistry (RSC), we recognise and value the differences that individuals bring to our community. We are therefore strongly committed to providing a welcoming, respectful, open, and inclusive learning and working environment, for all students and staff.

The RSC IDEA committee works closely with the School to develop and implement strategies that foster inclusion by facilitating access and promoting equity and diversity. We also work to ensure easy access to an open and diverse network of support that is available to all School members.
